Collapsed bone

Posted , 5 users are following.

Approx. 5 weeks after TKR I experienced terrible pain in the bottom of my leg.  Felt like muscle were being twisted.  Could not walk on my right leg without walker.

?Now 12 weeks later, my OS had x-rays taken and discovered that I had a "collapsed bone" on the inner part of the tibia near my knee.

?Anyone else ever experienced this.

      Going for bone density test.  Not a constant pain now but just feels like something is not right; especially weight bearing.  Thanks for your concern.

    Oh ouch!  That sounds awful!  Had you had any tests for osteoporosis or osteopenia?  Is it related to that?  My heart goes out to you!
